Tamil Nadu, the Indian state, has revealed new technology projects to create easier government processes including a blockchain infrastructure.
It has been reported by The New Indian Express that Edapaddi K. Palaniswami, the Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, announced the state’s adoption of an ethical blockchain policy.
However, Palaniswami also announced that Tamil Nadu intends to launch a project to provide Knowledge Proof Identity-based services delivery, which will revolutionize the way the government provides its services to citizens.
According to the report, the project will be implemented by establishing and leveraging the State Family Database (SFDB) and Blockchain Backbone infrastructure.
The blockchain infrastructure functions as a single source of truth for all government data and processes. It may also be used to reimagine governance and encourage blockchain use in the state.
Likewise, by launching the Blockchain Backbone infrastructure, the state also acknowledges the need to create a forum to promote collaboration between industry, start-ups, and academia to build an ecosystem.
Tamil Nadu has also adopted an ethical artificial intelligence (AI) policy that aims to take advantage of the advantages of AI while keeping it safe and ethically compatible with human values.
Thus, it also adopted a policy similar to cybersecurity to protect information and combat cybercrimes.
